Yet some more new stuff... I think this song is great if 
you're a songwriter you can really appreciate the lyrics
with so much color symbolism... blah blah blah...

p.s. rhythm's might be a lil harder than other trio songs
I suggest playing along w/ the c.d.

No doubt the strumming may be off... I always play/tab out with the cd playing so I get it wrong sometime... I'd suggest playing with the cd and figuring it out...
